Pictures and politics

With the forest of signs growing larger each day, both here and London, I am wondering what the motivation is to either place your image on the sign, or to omit it? Do you include your image so that you can show the potential voters that you look trustworthy, that you have an honest face? On the flip side, if you don’t include your image, does it mean that you would rather not be seen by the voters? As I believe most candidates have websites, or at least brochures or leaflets with their image on it, does it come down to money? If you don’t have your likeness on the sign, does it mean you are financially responsibly? The same can be said about the size of the signs, does bigger mean anything, does it mean you can afford to spend more? Does it mean that size IS important? In my ‘world’ I would have each candidate given a budget with which to advertise their wares as it were. How they chose to spend it would be up to them, but the voting public would know how much they had to spend and would be able to see what that [...]
